    Hello again.

    Decided to make a thread of all my released songs ,including works in progress.
    [Its all melodic electronica]

    SteenRNS
    Age: 25
    Country: Norway
    Composing since: 1997
    Software: Renoise
    Hardware: Roland EXR-5


    Everything i make is free to download.
    Decided to include a little description for
    each song ,so people know how i work.

    Breeding Electrodes


    Description:
    Sidechaining is insanely awesome. Cant believe it took me this long to use it...

    Confessions of the Oboe


    Description:
    I have never heard a trance song based around an oboe
    before so i decided to give it a try.

    Digitalius


    Description:
    Found a cool sound in one of my packs called 8-bit.
    It became the main lead in this one.
    I wonder how many gigs of sounds i got now.

    FAJA


    Description:
    This song is about 4-5 years old. Found it in some old folders i had.
    I updated a lot of the overall sound and had it mastered in Cubase.
    Hoping that the final result turned out well. Im pleased at least.

    Brighter than white


    Description:
    Very inspired by 90s trance music. I realy miss those times.
    When feelgood melodic trance was actualy played.

    Charged Reloaded


    Description:
    The original lacked a lot of sound quality and needed some changes.
    This is not a remix however. I made the whole song again from the ground up.
    A friend wanted be to go classical somewhere in the song. So i did.

    City of Lights


    Description:
    Tried out some new chords progressions. Turned out better than i thought.
    Its a bit dreamy ,but gets harder as it progresses.

    ReAnimation


    Description:
    Found a new cool sound i wanted to mess around with.
    The result was this song.
    A little harder than what i usualy make.

    The summoning of Xochipilli


    Description:
    Now ,this is an unusual song. Took me a while to get the sound right on that vocal.
    Decided i would finish this project after a friend of mine liked it.
    Going back and listening to stuff i made before ,is great.

    Frogs and Lemons


    Description:
    This song has that 90s feel to it ,intended of course.
    Uploaded the wrong file to start off. One wich hadn`t been mastered yet.
    This is realy important when uploading.
    You`d want to achieve good sound quality.
    It has of course been updated now.

    Speed of light


    Description:
    Experiemented with a lot of different synths in this one.
    The melody is something i made a few years back ,but never finished off.
    I have 725 projects on my computer that i go through from time to time.
    That`s when i found this melody.
    Its realy fun to put new improved sounds on old melodies.

    Sangria Ravin


    Description:
    This is a song i decided to release ,so that i could get feedback.
    Judging from the feedback ,it seems i need to make new version of it.
    If only i could find the original file.
    Its one of those 725 projects so it`ll take some time.
    Quite pleased with this one to be honest. Its a little different.

    Storms and Lucidity


    Description:
    Started working with a simple piano composition and moved on from there.
    It turned out realy well and got me first place on the CTG music community.
    Usualy when i make songs like these i start with simple chords and add on melodies as its playing.


    Conflicting emotions


    Description:
    When i started this project i had no idea where to take it.
    During production ,i had so many ideas that didn`t fit this song.
    It switches genres and mixes a few of them together.
    My only experimental song so far.
    Realy fun to make these since you can put whatever you`d like into experimentals.

    Adamantium


    Description:
    I got some realy good feedback on an earlier song stating what i could do better with my arrangement.
    Decided to make a song that followed this guys "rules".
    This song took a long time to make.
    I wanted to perfect it as much as i could before release.
    Based of standard trance realy.
    Realy cool sound in the second chorus by the way. (I got lucky with that one!)

    Alice Deejay - Better off alone[remade][Work in progress]


    Description:
    This was one of my favorites when i was younger.
    Great melodies is all it takes in my opinion.
    This goes for all genres.
    Keep in mind that this is a work in progress.
    The end release will propably sound very different.

    Solius


    Description:
    A very happy trance piece with some nice melodies.
    Tried out some new sounds in this one.
    Started with simple chords and built it up from there.

    Pulselines


    Description:
    Another one of those old melodies that needed to become a song.
    Added new sounds and a completely different soundscape that the original.
    I love using plucks.

    Technicus


    Description:
    This is one of those songs that i used a lot of time to create.
    The melody was the hardest part.
    In the beginning it was a simple piano playing the intro.
    I needed a much cooler sound to start it off with.
    Im glad i ended up using the pluck i found.
    I tweaked it to my liking and boosted some of its frequency levels.
    The pluck has a dreamy feel to it ,but also has some punch in its notes.

    The A38[Work in progress]


    Description:
    The song itself is finished ,but the sound hasn`t been tweaked yet.
    A very calm trance song with a flute melody.
    This is an old project my brother made about seven years ago that i remade back then.
    After i remade it and it was released ,i decided to remake it yet another time.
    Not entirely sure where i should take this one.

    Rap beat[Work in progress]


    Description:
    Wanted to try something new and create a rap beat.
    Turns out its not very good to rap on.
    It has some very nice melodies though.

    Norwegian dawn


    Description:
    A little experiment with Edward Grieg`s classic piece "Morgenstemning".
    Turned out okay ,considering the amount of time i used to re-compose it.
    Also experimented with some vocals on this one.
    Im realy not that great at mixing in vocals.

    Within the darkness


    Description:
    A darker and more athmospheric tune based of a song i once heard.
    Dont remember what the song was called.
    My plan was that it was meant to be dark from the beginning.
    Kind of having a deppressive overall tone to it.
    You realy can do anything you want in the electronica genre.

    Like a fire


    Description:
    A Tiesto based trance piece ,with some similarities to Forever today.
    Very standard trance in my opinion ,using a lot of ARPs and GATs.
    I personaly like the melody on this one.

    Colors of my mind[Radio edit]


    Description:
    When i first made colors of my mind and released it ,a few people thought it was a little bit to long.
    This is the shortened version. It gets to the best parts faster.
    Still one of my best songs. In my opinion of course.

    Treestars


    Description:
    Now this right here is a special one to me.
    It was based of my favorite childhood movie "The land before time".
    Took me about two weeks to finish this one and it turned out very good.
    The transistion from acoustic to trance was the most difficult.
    I didn`t want to take any shortcuts and just ruin the whole song.
    The long production time was well worth it.
    One of my longest songs to.


    Calieste


    Description:
    Fast paced trance action.
    Didn`t take very long to compose this one.
    Wanted to make a faster trance focused song.

    Colors of my mind[Original]


    Description:
    The original version of this song.
    Based off of Avicii songs like Levels and Dancing in my head.


    Shrooms


    Description:
    This was yet another one of those 725 projects i found.
    The original had terrible sound ,so i had to remake every piece.
    Its fast paced and melodic.

    Fantasy worlds


    Description:
    A dreamy tranced up piano based piece.
    I wanted to make a song almost consisting only of piano`s as the main lead.
    Turned out quite well in the end.

    Charged


    Description:
    My of my first song ,remixed and remastered to get better sound.
    It got good reviews when i first posted it on CTG.
    The arrangement in this one is simple ,yet effective.

    Fata Morgana


    Description:
    Starts off with one of my best piano segments.
    Becomes trance later on.
    The song was easy to finish after i had made that piano segment.

    Bassr1der


    Description:
    Tried to make a good dance song.
    This song has also been played at a club once ,with good response.
    It has a cool melody and a heap of bass.

    I hope you enjoyed listening to what i have made and keep following me as im not going to stop.
    This is my main hobby and i want people to enjoy and share my songs.
    Remember that all these songs are free to download.
    I would realy appreciate it if someone used my songs in a mix of some kind.
    I will keep updating this thread with new songs as they are released.
    New songs will always be posted at the top of the page.


    Thanks for your time !

    Brought some songs with me to a club this weekend.
    He said it wasn`t "house" enough.
    No idea what that means ,but apparently he didn`t like what he heard.

    Do i realy need to go sellout to get noticed?
    With some pitbull rapper singing bullshit and some lady going "Uh uh yeah baby uuuu"
    Oh god...

    start playing house parties, squat parties, whatever the hell can get you out there without anyone caring. if you go to the big chain clubs then they'll instantly assume that you can mix 7 different remixes of levels at once, i like your music, give me some time and i'll review a couple

    I dont mix songs. Feels like everyones doing that these days.
    I make new material.

    I wish people would just share my music with others if they like it.
    To sort of get the wheel spinning.

    send it off to small labels then, see what they think. send it to your local small radios to djs that you think might play it; you have to start small.

    Sent three songs to a friend of mine who`s a DJ.
    Would be cool to have a female vocal on top of some of my songs.
    Sadly i dont know any female singers and i suck at writing texts
    I tried to write a rap once ,that realy didn`t pan out very well...

    This should really receive more attention. Some of the songs are great, summoning of Xochipilli is awesome, and The River was also one of my favourites. Really nice trance you've got here, congrats dude.

    No one plays trance in clubs anymore. Yeah he pretty much wants to see a catchy four bar loop of some piano chords, a kick and strong bass and a person singing over it.

    Which DAW do you work out of? You have a nice trance vibe to your work, and that's something I can really appreciate :)

    Decided my brother needs some credit for my songs as well.
    He runs every song i make through cubase before every upload to soundcloud.
    His the guy who taught me to make stuff in the beginning.
    Introducing me to Fasttracker 2 many years ago.
    He makes electronica as well today and has some realy nice songs.

    Here`s his newest song.
    I`d classify his music as melodic electronica.
    Have a listen
